In a glorious valley below majestic mountains, the lovely country town of Barberton is an old place in many respects. In the modern era, the settlement was home to the first stock exchange in the region during the gold rush of the late 1880s. In the more ancient sense, the mountains that surround the town are amongst the oldest rock formations in the world.
A depiction of Barberton featured as the home town of Peekay, the hero of Bryce Courtney’s novel The Power of One.
